I think a chap in Essex is currently restoring it. You never know, the myth might become a reality... :)

Yes along with his Gen 1 and RX-3  he still has it but is short of a bonnet, apparently these were narrower than the piston equivalents  :3Confused
All the best Clive

It had a bonnet when it left my place! Maybe taken by the rust monster...

R100 - are they a myth?

Nowadays there are still 4 R100\'s registered in Holland, 2 of them are still running, the other 2 do have engine problems, which 1 of them has been fixed
by me, Clive has seen this one at Rotarystock 2011 in Holland.

Regards,

Kees

Here in Finland there is few nice Mazda 1300 for sale, which can be made to r100 clones. Unfortunatly, its not possible because are laws. And that is a shame.

I know that one gent here raced r100 back in 70´s with car he imported from Canada. It had 13b PP. I´ll try to find some pics if I can. :)
Power is nothing without control. Weight is enemy of performance, handling and braking.

We had one at Castle Coombe a couple of years ago, so yes they do exist.

My old Mazda dealer mate, Alan Bryer, who is sadly not with us any more imported some when they were new
